Rules and policies

PublishingPageContent

​To maintain a well organised and efficiently run school we have a number of policies which clearly articulate our shared expectations.  We appreciate the high levels of parent support which assist us to reinforce these policies as we strive to maintain a high standard at Waraburra.

Dress code

At Waraburra we are very proud of our green and gold uniform. Our dress code is strictly enforced and students wear the uniform proudly and respectfully.

Homework

Homework provides regular reinforcement of important school concepts and builds links between home and school.  Teachers will communicate expectations at the start of each year. We encourage parents to discuss and check homework with your child and to help foster a 'love of learning'.

At Waraburra State School, we believe homework must be

  • Purposeful and relevant to the students’ needs
  • Appropriate to the students capability and stage of development
  • Varied, challenging and related to class work
  • Developing independent work habits
  • Balanced in that it allows students to undertake other healthy activities

Volunteers

Our school community values the contribution of Volunteer Helpers.  Volunteer Helpers help to enhance curriculum delivery when assisting teachers to implement specific programs.

Any Volunteer Helpers who are not the legal parent or carer of a student currently enrolled at Waraburra State School are required to apply for and hold a valid Working With Students Check (Blue Card).  

Exclusion for health

Health alerts to advise parents of potential viruses, illnesses or concerns are posted on the home page of our website  If you have concerns that your child may have an infectious disease which requires a period of exclusion, please refer to the Illness and exclusion table (PDF, 703KB). This table provides information about the length of time students need to be excluded from school in the event of them contracting an infectious condition, for both their own recovery and the safety of other students who may be immuno-suppressed.

More information can be found in the Support and resources page.
